Viña von Siebenthal ‘Riomistico’ Viognier 2017

32.00

Description

A magnificent showcase for this wonderful grape from France’s Rhône valley, with distinct nods to Condrieu.

The only white wine produced in the von Siebenthal vineyards, this powerful Viognier is matured for 12 months in new French oak barriques and total production is limited to just a few hundred cases.

Rich and slightly honeyed in appearance, there’s viscosity to the body evident from the thick tears that stream down the glass. The nose is equally enticing, heady and unctuous aromas of apricot, pineapple, orange peel and acacia flowers. The wine itself is full-bodied and slightly oily, voluptuous, rich and layered with sweet tropical and stone fruits, delicate floral and spice notes, honey and vanilla, and a length that just goes on and on.

Serve up with white meats or game, but at its transcendent best with slow-roasted pork shoulder or goose.

Producer: Viña von Siebenthal

Mauro von Siebenthal was a Swiss lawyer until, in 1998, he had an epiphany while visiting friends in Chile's Aconcagua Valley. Falling in love with the region and spotting the opportunity to buy a small bodega, Mauro set about establishing his first vineyard, the 30 acre Parcela #7, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

By 2009, Mauro had given up life as a lawyer, fully relocated to Chile, and established Viña von Siebenthal with the building of a new state of the art winery. The boutique estate specialises in small production Bordeaux red blends, planting and blending according to the unique soil types within the four main vineyards currently owned.
